New Sources for Bending Magnet beamlines at Ultra-Low-Emittance Synchrotron - towards Diamond II Diamond Light Source, UK
Friday 4th September 2015
Diamond Meeting Room G54
This workshop will be run as a satellite of the Diamond SR Users’ Meeting 2015 (2nd and 3rd September), but there will be a restricted number of participants. A total of 8 speakers from Diamond, SLS, Soleil, ALS, BNL and ESRF are being invited to share their expertise/experience from the machine physics and from the beamline science point of view from SR facilities that are looking at or undergoing storage ring upgrades. This includes the options for the proposed Diamond-II upgrade which is due to take place within the next 10 years.
The focus of the workshop will be on the evolution that bending magnet sources and beamlines need to go through in order to gain in terms of flux and/or brightness from the lower electron emittance within the constraints that new machines impose. The idea will also be to explore solutions suitable for the wider bending magnet beamlines community – from X-rays to UV and IR – and we are interested in new/alternative designs both to push the critical energy up or lower it down, depending on the spectral range of interest.
The workshop on the 4th will be informal and plenty of time will be reserved for discussion, with the plan to have a summary report in the end. A visit to Diamond will be possible on the afternoon of the 3rd September for those of you interested.
